Shocking, I know. But the new movie, I Am Legend, based on the book The Omega Man, of the same name [see comments], contains a number of elements that are scientifically dubious at best, if not outright impossible. Popular Mechanics has the run down.

I kind of thought that I Am Legend was based on the 1954 book I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, just like the movie The Omega Man was.

You are correct -- I misread my source. The movie The Omega Man is based on the book I Am Legend, and not the other way around.
